of majority, came closer to losing than people thought he would. obama was reelected despite his attempts to prevent that. so, they both have an interest in getting something done. i think it is highly remote that anything will get done. the neighborhood has only gotten more dangerous. >> colby king? >> i thought it waimportant that he made the trip. ultimately, if there is going to be peace in the area it will have to come from those on the ground. the united states can not do it from the outside. george bush tried unsuccessfully. every president has tried and all failed because of the participants. >> what has changed? the settlements continue, but it is no long number one on presidt obama's agenda. >> the president has acknowledged the mistake early on, but let's be frank, the relationship has changed. netanyahu embraced, endorsed and basically campaigned for mitt romney, who did not carry florida, which was supposed to be the cornerstone of the campaign strategy. barack obama did get reelected and made a case that the two- state solution was imperative for israel's values, that we do
to issue some type of apology. did they get something in return? i hope so. otherwise it looks like obama is leaning on the israelis. bad signal to the rest of the region. >> chris: with all of the focus on syria and iran there was relatively little talk about the prospects for a peace deal between the israelis and palestinians but the president did address it in this speech in jerusalem. >> iit is possible. it is possible. i'm not saying it is guaranteed. i can't even say that it is more likely than not but it is possible. >> chris: juan, the big news here is that the president seemed to be dropping his in is siftence that israel had to stop its settlement construction first before there were direct talks. in fact he kind of leaned on the palestinians and said look if you make a final deal the settlements will take care of themselves. how big a movement is that? >> a big movement in terms of reframing the discussion because at the moment everybody is frozen, saled. they can't come to a decision about the settlements because obviously the palestinians view it as occupied territories. the
want to see. >> i remember that guy. that's hope and change obama. i know hope and change obama. i covered him in 2008. so is this just words about what hillary clinton once said about candidate obama or is there something concrete that is going to happen here? >> there is something concrete. sometimes as americans we may not fully appreciate the impact of when an american president goes to another nation. in this case a small nation, a nation that has fears at times, isn't always so confident. and when that president looks in the eye of 8 million israelis and he says, be proud, israel, you are the strongest country in the middle east, and also be very confident because the strongest nation on earth, we have an unbreakable bond with you. and you need to figure out, what he essentially said to israel's young people, how can you be democratic, how can you be a jewish state which you must be, but, also, how do you deal with the issue of the palestinian right of self-determination, i mean challenge the israeli young people to take action relative to politics in a very effective way. >>
they begin? >> well, not by using the word reset. because when obama resets something, it's a disaster and i have to say, megyn, i was fascinated and jarred when i heard president obama speak about our eternal friendship with israel and realized in washington eternal means until the 2014 election. but there are stakes here and to be fair, i think the president has undergonna real mental, perhaps even emotional shift. as we all know he came to office with a chip on his shoulder against israel. he had that chicago reverend wright background where israel is repressors and arabs were good freedom fighters especially the palestinians and heard in the cairo speech, but for the last four years, our president has been trying to deal with the fractious, often truculent arabs and now the palestinians, even though he is going to the west bank to meet with them tomorrow, the palestinians are complaining that he won't pay homage to the tomb of yasser arafat and i think to an extent our president may have finally realized that, yes, israel is our only friend and ally and by the way, the only truly civiliz
of it. my guess with president obama, honestly, is that he looked at this, said we need to get something passed, an assault weapons ban will tank there, and i'm going to need to go to these people on other things -- on immigration, maybe on climate change potential. i'm going to need to go to them on other tough votes, and why do this now when it may not pass anyway? i know temperature gun control advocates are very upset, but susan put it right, a very cold political calculation. if you want to know who really sort of ended the assault weapons ban, it's thought conservative democrats in places like south dakota, montana, north carolina, people who have to stand for reelection in states where gun rights is a popular position. >> speaking of a state where gun rights is a popular position, kentucky, where mitch mcconnell is phasing a race and now former president bill clinton getting in there and signaling his opposition to ashley judd's high-profile thought of running. according to the secretary of state, alan son grimes. what is the story behind that? >> democrats think they have a shot
, and the nasdaq lost ten points. on the domestic front, president obama called upon congress to, quote, finish the job on immigration. speaking during a citizenship ceremony at the white house, president obama stressed the importance of getting something done. >> we have known for years that the immigration system is broken, not doing enough to harness the ingenuity of those who work hard to find a place here in america, and after avoiding the problem for years, the time has come to fix it once and for all. the time's come from the comprehensive, sensible immigration reform. lou: the president went on to put a time line on the issue saying he wanted congress to debate immigration reform next month, and that he wants a bill to sign as soon as possible. he's rallying support for gun control, and new york city mayor michael bloomberg is picking 7:the slack, pumping $12 million of his own money into a national ad campaign trying to persuade senators to support expanded background checks, and cbs learned the hard way not to mess with american's veterans or my fox news colleague. the network angered
. congressman cartwright, i want to get you to respond to something that senator corker says he wants president obama to do. here's what he said over the weekend. >> when the president uses his bully pulpit to explain to the american people that families are only paying one-third of the cost of medicare, we will know that we've begun the process of trying to solve this problem. i hope that happens as soon as he gets back from israel. >> congressman cartwright, i know there's a lot of disagreement about how you reform medicare. is there a raising of the age and all that. but should the president go out there and explain that there is some funding issues having to do with medicare to get more of the country engaged? >> well, first off, as i said before, there's a lot more that we agree about than what we disagree about. so, for example, i think the democrats and republicans both agree that we've got to get to a balanced budget picture. it's just a question of when and how do you do it. the democrats want to see a balanced approach. the republicans have their own approach that they've already talk
in the president obama administration. >> this is something that president clinton really focused on. a lot of progress was made. we saw in president obama's first term a reluctance to dive into this. maybe because he couldn't find a solution. he left most of this to secretary of state hillary clinton. now i think this trip is to sort of shore up and do some of the things he couldn't get done in that first term and show israel we are really there for him. it's been a successful trip so far for him. >> you have spent a lot of time in the region. what's the significance of john kerry being there before the president and staying there after the president leaves. >> i think it shows this is more than just a photo-op. the white house is trying to downplay expectations but at the same time, they're laying the groundwork for greater involvement and more discussions. we will see if the secretary of state is able to achieve anything after the president leaves. let me ask you this. when we were in break, you expressed skepticism about this kind of process. not the sort of thing you want to hear from
netanyahu well. netanyahu has some rough edges. obama's rough edges he can pretty carefully conceal. >> john, why don't we talk about something serious? >> what? >> talk about something serious. >> what do you mean? psychology plays a big role in this. >> the question is, is obama going to be persuaded to go into syria, and can netanyahu convince him to move militarily against iran. that's the big stuff. the bon ame -- >> if they get the wrong drift in the level. >> the bon ame is to get to the big stuff. >> i think that pat is exactly right, how far obama is willing to go to put his money where his mouth is on helping israel. at this point that all looked well and good but i don't see him going far enough. >> eleanor, quickly. >> this is a gap between them on syria. i think netanyahu is just as wary of entering syria, but it did not prevent the president from going over netanyahu's head and talking to the israeli public, and there is a gap between what the people want and what the leaders want. >> here's what i want to know about syria, is do they have chemical weapons. >> they've got 'em.

the situation is when pelosi said obama never did anything for political reasons, i had to get up and defend that, which is not easy. when harry says something like, this when you might not disagree about his connection there, but none the less, the timing was terrible. those are the kind of things that indicate to me these are people who don't have a political ear on the ground of what's going on in this country. that you have to do. these are very difficult political times. >> bill: all right so you say you are saying that the democratic leadership on the hill on capitol hill, is a c. >> i would say that yeah. compared to other ones that i have worked with. >> bill: why? why isn't it more vibrant than -- because i agree with you. i would give reid a d and pelosi probably a c minus. do you know pelosi by the way in the run-up to the iraq war was for removing saddam hussein? did you know that? i read that the "wall street journal" today. >> i know. a lot of people were. i was not. >> bill: she was. hillary was. i thought that was pretty interesting. >> badly informed. you know, the answer, i
there was a lack of trust between obama and netanyahu. and this is something that will transpire later but to me, e of the most important potential outcomes of this visit would be to restore or to build from the outset. >> rose: a relationship between netanyahu and obama. >> and obama, where they can trust each other. >> but that starts, i think, with him building the relationship of trust with the israeli public. you see, his approval ratings went down to 10. that is what they were on friday before they went there. and the irony is that they also went down to 10 in the arab world. because what the arabs wanted was him to fulfill his promise to solve the palestinian problem. when he didn't do that and didn't close guantanamo they lost faith in him. now, i think, us through this speech and through the actions that he has taken on this trip, he will restore or reintroduce himself to the israeli public. >> rose: he wants to reset the israeli-u.s. relationship. >> once he improves his standings amongst the israeli you be pick-- public, netanyahu will be more compliant, why? because the israeli public w
that oppose it. >> 45%. >> that's pretty good. when if you asked about obama care or something like that. >> republicans have learned that while these folks who were undocumented can't vote their kids who are born here are becoming citizens are voting and not voting for republicans and at the same time that poll shows the people are way ahead of the politicians on this one. they are ready for this. they want it. they want to see the system work. so they want a pragmatic approach and there's a really good political and pragmatic sweet spot we can hit if we work it the right way. >> it's a small spot. i don't think we should -- having covered the complexity there's a lot of moving pieces when people talk about what the enforcement part of it will be. hat the current pathway to citizenship will look like. that pathway will have a number of hurdles. you can build eight foot hurdles or two foot and some will run smack dab into that. >> tough, smart and fair. >> the fact that the country does immigration reform doesn't mean immigration reform is good and the fact that it's bipartisan doesn't m

zone. there are a lot of human rights reports of system take torture abuse of prisoners. something that's taken place under president obama, so it's been a heinous place in all sorts of ways. john: none of this has helped the american's popularity with the afghan people. notorious prisons like the black jail and salt pit, do we know if they're closed as well? our abuses said to be going on in other places or is bagram ground zero for prisoner torture? >> the perception of the afghans is anywhere the americans obtain afghan prisoners there's been abuse. there are lots of people on the ground in afghanistan that have said that other than killing people innocent people, that our prison network the way it's abused prisoners putting people in prison with new due process has turned the population to the taliban against the united states. it's a little unclear in terms of detail. certainly the bulk of the prison network is turned over to afghan control. that is good news. there seems to be some retention of plus nurse probably foreign prisoners under u.s. control, as well as a deal, a sort of
the fact is if there are tax increases for obama care both sides want to get rid of. >> here is a something though, a handful of republican governors. they come to embrace the crucial programs, medicaid expansion. that includes florida governor rick scott, ohio governor john kasich, arizona governor jan brewer. but these same governors then reject the exchanges. so, are they just trying to have it both ways? >> of course they are trying to have it both ways. they are politician. nothing wrong going on with the obama care bill. tough tweak legislation. legislations are not perfect. you take a little of this, a little of that. you massage things. things sort of play itself out. i think we will have a more perfect bill. sort of like our constitution, wasn't a perfect document, we have added things to make it better. this is what is happening with obama care, make it better. you will have some time to perfect this thing. do you see governors playing politics because, of course, they want to do medicaid, worried about the voters, don't want to do exchanges it is not funded yet f it is funded, i
that bloomberg are is addressing. >> but we didn't ask to pick up 9 tab. it is obama care that foisted it. >> you are wrong about that. >> and we have to wore arery about the the smokers because of obama care. >> you said that. >> we have to do something about the gay bathhouses because aids is expensive and if i'm paying for it. >> geraldo: do they still have guy bathhouses? >> it is about insurance actuaries and if they determine things cost more money then you see insurance premiums g. the rest of us are hit with the costs. if gay bars were costing everyone a great deal of money and we were picking up the tab you might see enforcement there. that is not the case. >> why do you say it is not the case. >> if we are picking up the tab? >> geraldo: aren't the majority of aids patients on some kind of government coverage because the aids medication costs so much money. >> aids doesn't only affect homosexuals. >> and illegal drug use. mostly in this country it is homosexual behavior. i'm not the one that wants to go anything about it. if the argument is smoking we all have to pay. sodomy we all have
, something president obama has described as a red line. let's get to chief white house correspondent jessica yellen. she's in jerusalem awaiting president obama as he heads in her direction for his trip to the middle east. we just heard, jessica, from senator dieann feinstein, the chair of the intelligence committee, she said president obama has a decision to make. are you getting any sense of where he's going to go on this? >> hi, brianna. this is not something the white house is yet commenting on, except that white house chief of staff, dennis mcdunn, speaking to jake tapper, if, and i underscore if, these reports are substantiated, it is his word. the president said the use of chemical weapons by the assad regime would be his red line. of course, we would have to see what kind of action the president would then take. and the white house, again, watching this very closely. we don't have comment from them at this point beyond what white house chief of staff dennis mcdone now said to jake tapper. he said if substantiated, it would be a game changer, not backing down from that language that t
'll be on your way home soon too i know. thanks. >>> president obama is coming home to something he hasn't seen in four years. a budget proposal passed by the united states senate. this one was approved at 5:00 in the morning by a razor thin margin 50-49 after a marathon overnight session fittingly called vote-a-rama. the bill is expected to get knocked down when it gets to the house. >>> in georgia two teens are charged with murder. the 14 year old and 17 year old killed a 13-month-old baby boy. that little baby's mother says the boys demanded money and then shot her child strapped in his stroller. they are still looking for the gun and a motive. nick is in brunswick. police are confident they arrested the right guys. one of the suspects could have an alibi. tell us about that. >> reporter: yesterday the aunt of the elder suspect -- i use that term relatively -- he's 17 years old. the other suspect is 14 years old. his aunt spoke to a local affiliate and said they have the wrong guy and no way they got the right suspect because he was with her the whole time. >> i am devastated. i'm sad becaus
questions you have. >> thank you, mr. director. i share your concern. until congress and the obama administration, together to do something bold like the simpson- bowles commission, this will continue. domestic discretionary accounts are being squeezed. entitlements are rising. you make a powerful case against sequestration on friday, received a reprogramming a request from the eternal -- attorney general moving funds, including fbi funds to the bureau of prisons. we are going to approve that. you have had one prison guard killed. you had another commit suicide i think because of the death. how are you planning to function at reduced funding levels for this year? >> we are cutting back across the board. we have a hiring freeze. by the end of this fiscal year, we will have 2200 opened vacant positions. we delayed i.t. upgrades, which are expensive, but tremendously important. that includes putting off, picking up technology that would assist us in detecting cyber attacks. we reduced or eliminated operational training and travel across the board. that is in an effort to make certain
here. i think there is something to this trip that if netanyahu and obama speaking in israel, but also speaking to iran. do you think there is any merit to that? >> well, yeah, i mean, in iran i'm sure they read some of the headlines and everything that has been written about the president and netanyahu how they don't get along how netanyahu would have preferred romney to win. this is to show that there is no daylight between the two countries. i think each president was in full pander mode. i thought netanyahu was quite gracious to the president, saying they've met 10 or 11 times. he appreciates the time the u.s. president is putting into this, and the banter not only at the press conference, but the reports from the reporters following them and apparently netanyahu has been lamenting about all the political problems he's facing putting this new coalition together and the president saying, well, tell me about it. i have problems with our congress and netanyahu said we have more moving parts around here. and they're talking about the system they have to operate in. >> michael: it's a f
candidates coming up against barack obama who happens to be a terrific vote-getter and without barack obama, the field is much more level than it looks right now. lou: there is something treacherous about having the principal element of your strategy the absence of it. they will examine it in greater detail, and try to figure out by tom perez, and absolutely radical left winger will be the labor secretary. it appears. we will be back with the "a-team" in just a moment. my goal was to take an idea and make it happen. i'm janet long and i formed my toffee company through legalzoom. never really thought i would make money doing what i love.

quickly -- i do think there's something to the fact that both president obama and prime minister netanyahu got themselves reelected. in the world of political leaders, there is a special place for leaders to manage to get reelection. it is no small achievement. i think the level of mutual respect, be grudging perhaps, but the level of mutual respect goes up. it only operates in that rarified world of people who know what is involved in the entire process of figuring out and working and getting one salt reelected. they will be with each other for a period of time they will not try to undermine each other. this is really government is perhaps less solid and previous israeli governments. i do think there is something that contributes to the solidity of the relationship when the two leaders look at each other as reelected by their own politics. ironically, both men come to the summit with a much heavier need to address politics in their own countries. for the president, he is coming back to deal with the end of government. that is supposed to happen in a few days. is at least as much about dom
obama and israeli leaders both agree that something needs to be done to keep iran from developing nuclear weapons. israel threatened to take military action if iran appeared to be on the verge of having a bomb. president obama pushed for more time for peace talks but says military action is still on the table. president obama once hep weres up his -- once he wraps up this conference, he will head to speak to benjamin netanyahu where they will hold a press conference in about three hours. back to you. >> thank you. >>> a sheriff says it appears a 911 call to a middle school school in southern minnesota was a hoax. the school in new prague, minnesota immediately went on red alert and locked down each class when a caller said there was someone with an ak-47. a search of the school turned up nothing. they say everyone is southwest. this school is 45 miles southwest of minneapolis. there are about 875 students at that school in grades 6th through 8th. >>> an ohio teenager has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for a school shooting that killed three stud
mentions. palestinians are as frustrated with obama's presidency as israelis have been. so i think that is really something that he has to tackle first. and on the beast today, on the daily beast, the brookings institute has a really interesting primer on what obama should look for here at this meeting and some of the objectives he should go for. one of them is that he should reintroduce himself to the israeli public and try and make friends with the palestinians again. >> andrea, let me bring you back in here. let's talk about the newly formed coalition government. what might that government do? how might that affect any sort of potential talks with the palestinians? >> well, they are going to put, he is putting, a more moderate member of his cabinet in charge of the peace talks. but she has shown in the past, not the greatest plist cal skill, not able to get them off ground when she even had power. so that's a real problem for this government. in terms of housing policy. the latest issue says where the settlements are. there are settlements and the u.s. says settlements are not h
? >> could be very serious. you could be talking about premiums that actually double, and something that sets off an alarm, officials for the obama administration who is in charge of setting up these exchanges across the country, said they might not be ready in time. they have to be ready by october 1st, and said they're working on plan b to avoid people facing what he called a third-world system. confused, ineffective. messy system. so, there are signs that the obama administration is beginning to get a little worried about how this is actually going to work. it's not a year away. it's october 1st for the exchanges. >> neil: is it risky for the president to be among the first to sign up for this deal? >> well, i tell you, the obama administering is going to -- when it becomes a reality, they're really going to push very hard to make sure that they are people who are helped they can point to. >> neil: that would include him. he'll sign up and become the first patient. >> totally symbolic. the president has to have the pest health care of the country. but the thing is these exchanges -- the ob

you something. how much will they get done? >> they won't get much of anything done other than the symbolism. obama will tell netanyahu unpleasant things, but you won't hear a word of it. it will be pictures of them joking around and yucking it up. it will be in their political advantage to do it. >> speaking of something you said. isn't it like mom and dad putting on a good show for the kids, but secretly they are going to get divorced? >> i don't think it was a compliment to begin with. if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift is from me. and they would say, thank you for being a friend. subtext, bring me a present, obama. in conclusion evie is greedy and blamp -- and blanch was a whore. >> you are saying that because you dated bea arthur in the 80s and there was a lot of strive. >> let it be. >> let it be indeed. she was quite the tumbler. she was into gym that is sticks. gymnastics. i loved bea arthur. but i wasn't crazy for maud. >>> okay. bill will discuss his book, i do the news and do it nude. first, what is a don't feed me t-sh
. that's changing the dynamic a little bit from his perspective. that being said, i think president obama has also understood, and you saw clinton do this, secretary clinton did this, every single trip she ever did, she did something outside of the official and made a point to go talk directly to the people. and i think the president understands that he has got to go make that case and try to you know, whether it's poll numbers or what have you. build some kind of a bond with the people directly, because how you impact and are viewed by the folks outside of government will help your efforts inside of government. and he hasn't always done that. you know, the last thing i'll say on this is people see it as a sign of respect. come and talk to us. granted it was a supportive audience. but come and talk to us, show us that you care about the things that are important to our culture. to our history. george bush, remember, he was not a big fan of doing that. and it really, it was something that -- >> and also this is the president, this is president obama's first state visit to israel, right? an
couldn't help but notice all three of these deal with obama's second term. there's kind of an understanding for a conservative it's something they're going have to live through. so how did you go about acquiring these books in such a short period of time? you weren't aware of who would inthe election. >> that's a terrific question. we struggled and talk abouted a lot in the second half of last year. it's something that all current events publishers have to deal with, but particularly for -- we focus on only conservative political books, that's our niche and we know every four years it's going an interesting challenge to try to publish in to the beginning of a new presidential term. especially when you don't know. you never do when it's going the incumbent or someone new. in cases it's going someone new no what matter what. we tried to sign up books that were very practical, and talking about what people needed to do to survive and thrive. kind of no matter who was in charge. then we knew that one the election was over, we would pivot one way or the other in the positioni

. for 40 years, the most number of republicans in the house was 192. today we have 230 something, and it is absolutely right to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated. >> do you think that there is with the report that the chairman put together and if the republican party is willing to commit to reach out, is that the answer to try to expand the party by paying people to put operatives out there, to make that connection, to look for ways to expand the party? >> that is a big part of it. i commend the chairman. it was a very thoughtful, thorough report. it has some good recommendations. the fact is the obama campaign and the democrats did a good job of having people out there. they did that better than we did. they had a presence in all communities you had that you needed to turn out, to win. >> donna, does it worry you that they will have democrats on their heels? >> i have put that aside "shade of gray" volume 3. i'm halfway through the report, and

. >> what about tax reform? something president obama and the republicans in congress all say they want to do. with would that be a place to start? >> everybody wants corporate tax reform. our system is broken. it creates the wrong incentives and leads to more jobs yaever s overseas. it has to come as part of a bigger package it to get the numbers to work and the bigger package of tax reform, i think, is somewhat dubious because everybody talks about the trillion dollars of loopholes but nobody wants to eliminate the home interest deduction and all of that stuff is off the table. the times had an editorial all of these loopholes. you add up those numbers and it's a rounding error. the only way to deal with this is to attack the big stuff. >> conservatives are coming off their annual conference over the weekend but still big signals the party is not on the same page going forward. republican party chair reince priebus is pointing to branding as a major problem for the gop in the last election. >> i believe our parties had a real quality of contacts problem and what i mean is that we have
